The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in partnership with Employability Bridge (EB), organised a FLAG 2013 (First Look at Aspiring Graduates 2013) programme at KLN College of Engineering with focus on improving hiring from Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities, here on Saturday.

Launching the event, A. Kathir Kamanathan, Vice-Chairman, CII Madurai Zone and Chief Executive Officer, Chella Software P Ltd, briefed the students on the immense opportunities available with small and mid-size companies and how a student gets a holistic development in all skills by taking up opportunities through the programme.

Last year two FLAG events were run with a focus on central Tamil Nadu and events garnered a total of 600+ offers. This year there are more than a dozen FLAG events planned to create access to the entire Southern region covering major parts of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, he said.

Emmanuel Justus, CEO, Employability Bridge, said that FLAG was an excellent model as it improved the efficiency by which companies meet students that they want to hire.

Ambalavanan Ramachandran, Chief Operating Officer added that FLAG has been designed to give every student an opportunity to get placed.

A.V. Ramprasad, Principal, KLN College of Engineering, welcomed the participants. A total of 20 colleges, 500+ students and 7 companies participated and 100 hires were made.
